DOGS AND CATS: Castration or neuter is the procedure performed on male dogs and cats, and entiles the removal of the testicles. Intact male pets have a higher risk of health problems as they get older, including prostata enlargement, prostata infeccion and testicular cancer. Neuter also helps to prevent unwanted behaviors such as agression, urine marking, wandering,... But our pet is going to play, to obbey; it isn´t change its normal behavior. Dogs should be castrate with 6-10 months of age and cats with 4-6 months of age. Castration affects the ability to regulate food intake and thus predisposes these animals to obesity. If pets are exercised regularly and their food intake is controlled, there are no significant increase in weight in neuter males.
